Mastercraft Courser-MTK (vs) BFG Mud Terrain KM2

So until recently I have been dead set on my next set of tires being a set of 32x11.5 BFG KM2's but my brother in law swears by Mastercraft and being that hes a farmer driving through mud, corn, rocks, and a lot of highway... I decided to take a look...

BFG INFO
32x11.5 - actual diameter: 31.8" tread width: 8.7" weight: 52lbs
33x12.5 - actual diameter: 32.8" tread width: 9.8" weight: 58lbs

MasterCraft INFO
32x11.5 - actual diameter: 31.4" tread width: 9.0" weight: ??
33x12.5 - actual diameter: 32.5" tread width: 9.9" weight: ??

I know the KM2's are a favorite amongst the wrangler crowd but what about the Mastercrafts? They certainly look good on paper

MTK? Never heard of that one. I ran the Mastercraft Courser MT in the 265/75-16 flavor and they were fantastic tires. Made by Cooper in the USA. Balanced great and ran smooth. Worked good offroad and never had a flat.

Can't remember if they had 3 ply sidewalls or not but I ran them pretty hard on sharp rocks and roots and never had a problem with them.

Have the Mastercrafts on a 2500 4x4 chevy work truck.. They have a nice ride and a heavy duty sidewall, but are terrible on wet roads.. Not sure how that translates on a Wrangler, but on my truck I really have a tough time in the rain with the Mastercrafts..

Ive heard a lot about the mastercraft and the BFG being poor in on road rain or ice scenarios.. has anyone tried siping them? Id like to know how much if any it actually helps.
